Wow, I thought mine was bad. I got scammed out of $500 by an instagram scammer.
around 6k$ cryptos. I was not late to the game but my investment strategy was sh*t so...
Oh boy, I really don't know where to start!
I have been losing all my life and now I started to see a bit of success!
TO EVERYBODY: PLEASE FIND JOY IN DIFFICULT TIME and that will help you a lot!
A part of my success was from this community! Thank you BHW. before 7-9 months I was bankrupt and had 00.00 money then thanks to bhw pieces of information I got 7usd then from that 7usd I started growing and arrived where i am today.
don't give up just stay focused.
Not millions, but I bought REQ in 2017 at $0.05, watched it go to $1.20, got greedy, didn’t sell. Saw the bubble burst, was in denial and held, finally sold with only a little profit.
Technically not a loss because I still made money, but at some point I had 24x that money. So it kind of feels like a loss
I bought just before everything kicked off at $13 for Eth and 1.1k for Bitcoin and sold at the peak. So on paper I did really well but in all honesty I screwed up big time and it was all just luck anyway.
The only reason I put money into it in the beginning was because I had several thousand in cash in the house and a retaliative with sticky fingers staying with us. I didn't want to put said money in the bank so I had only one other option. So because because of that thieving family member I made 20k lol. True story!
Had I not messed about with it and left it putting it into a bunch of shitcoins and left it in just Ether I would have walked away with hundreds of thousands, but instead I tried to play a game that I had no idea how the rules worked and made just some money by accident instead of hundreds of thousands, c'est la vie.
So don't feel bad, I think most of us did the same thing
200 usd by a scammer.
My worst loss was not capitalizing on IM in the 2013-2016 period, when I had the perfect conditions to do so. Keeping all eggs in one basket and thinking that something will last for a long time was a mistake that I will never ever repeat. A huge loss of time and potential money - though an important lesson learned!
Crypto. I don't even wanna talk about it
Hahaha, thanks to your relative Ah yeah, the shitcoin gambling. 2017 was a fun year! I'm still kicking myself because I knew about Crypto in 2013 already, even bought Dogecoin in 2014 (no idea why I didn't buy Bitcoin lol). Forgot aubout the Dogecoin until 2017, made 60 bucks Not much, but I still was happy when I found it on my wallet after all these years. Syncing the blockchain alone took over a day.
A lot of fun (and some sad) stories. It was a wild ride.
500K, frikin wallstreet, going all in with zero experience, longing and shorting using 10x that amount from the broker, over 8 months...... was going to end life..... but decided it aint worth it, it happened for a reason.... started a diet, did other drastic things to supress the loss, could not stop thinking about it.... here i am about a year later, and just moving ahead, but i cannot stop looking back, it hurts too much, it was $ that was earned with sweat and a lot of hard work....... to lose it so fast and so nasty is just........................
Damn, and here I thought I had it bad. Realizing how "lucky" I've been.
Lost about $30-40k due to shitty partners, scammers and services that haven't worked
I think one can always find another in a place more worse the he is. U just gave to look.
$1.2M, 9 years, relationship, and sanity on a brewery.
Stick with online investments. Much less chaos.
i think online highest was about $33k to bitconnect if i recall correctly a bitcoin lending platform but i manage to withdraw about $6k just 2 hours before they shut the platform. and ran
In the ballpark of 50k to wall street. I was up at one point 120k but ended up losing it all. Still paying for it.
Lost another 16k on rare coin investment.
Another 12k on a coding bootcamp. what a joke that was. Still paying for it.
What you did wrong? I hate FB exactly for this....one bad move and you are fucked.
